My Finisher Medal to Cancer Care Northwest


I presented my finisher medal from PF Changs Rock N Roll Marathon to my cancer surgeon yesterday in a wonderfully planned out presentation. Dr Moline was really honored and had no idea what we had planned. All of my wonderful new friends at Cancer Care northwest were there in attendance for this special moment. Thank you to everyone at Cancer Care Northwest for making me cancer free and back to my love of running marathons! I will forever be grateful!

Rock N Roll Arizona


Is anyone else running RNR Arizona next weekend?

Icy running


It is a solid sheet of ice here in Spokane this morning. Tried to drive down off the hill to meet some friends to run at Manito Park and had to get myself out of the ditch and head back home because it was so slick! I will do my running on the treadmill today. Excited for my marathon next weekend in Phoenix.
